We explored the high-magnetic-field behavior of the thermoelectric and thermal-transport coefficients to probe the quasiparticle excitations in the normal and superconducting phase of FeSe. The small and compensated thermoelectric coefficients increase with decreasing temperature (T) due to the T-dependent increase of the charge-carrier mobility and the dominant role of the small hole Fermi-surface pocket. The measured longitudinal and transverse thermal conductivities imply that a highly anisotropic small superconducting gap forms at the electron pocket whereas an isotropic and larger gap forms at the hole pocket. Below 1 K, both thermal conductivities exhibit anomalies at the upper critical field, Hc2, and at a constant field H* around 14 T. These results support the existence of a distinct field-induced superconducting phase above H* which emerges with a presumed large spin-imbalance of the hole Fermi-surface pocket.
